    [QUOTE=Garrick;479163]Diurpaneus, congratulations.

    For me, Carpathian region from Romania to Southern Poland has been fascinating with costumes, dances, musics etc., in the picture Southern Polish dance:


    But let's post a much better video:



    The freestyle doesn't look that bad,does it?
    I definitely enjoy the Vlach ballet that starts at 1:30,powered by opinca,the dancers from Split
    could have been engaged in similar movements.

    It occurred to me that people might more easily be able to find videos of this kind of folk music if you started a thread in the European music section. There's already one there for Italian folk music, and it would be a welcome addition. Just a suggestion.

    Perhaps it is connected with old Europe or IEs who might have spread from Easter Europe. Here is a look at spanish 16 century fashion. White shirt, vest and surprisingly similar hat.


    Or this Basque folk couple could be placed somewhere in Balkans?

    Similarities inevitably occur due to the ability of cultures to
    easily expand,to influence one another,but in order to certify a
    certain correlation,you have to add the facts that supports it.
    Living isolated in the mountains,the Gorals had probably integrated
    their original Vlach elements even into the Polish dances,developing
    a style of their own,like the other North-Carpathian groups did.


    This is the story of two shepherds that have met in an exposition
    from Torino,the Pole,hearing that his companion is Romanian,said
    to him that he is of Vlach origin too.They came up with a project,to
    reconstruct the Vlach migration to Northern Carpathians.
    The Polish hinghlanders couldn't retain their ancestral
    way of living(shepherdry)without preserving other traditions too.


    To summarize,I don't care if the Polish dance is just a Medieval
    pan-European phenomenon,but I'm very interested of Goral print
    in it,it has to be one,since they had ultimately preserved non-Polish/non-
    Slovakian dances(hora,for instance,a traditional Romanian circle dance).


    http://www.redykkarpacki.pl/index.ph...0UCRAINE&j=ENG

    http://www.romania-insider.com/roman...roject/106890/




    It is very likely that these mountaineers had preserved(judging from people's faces)
    not only traditions,but also genes for their agitated kingdom.

    EDIT:

    "Gorals have their distinctive music and the intricate quick step dance that is performed to this day."

    http://www.shsnepa.org/Folktales%20a...e%20Gorals.htm

    EDIT2:

    "Southern Poland features the culture of the Gorals (Polish highlanders). These dances were brought to this mountain areas with Vlach settlers in the 17th century. Very similar versions can be found at the Gorols inSlovakia and in Czech Republic. The rhythm of their music is different for the otherwise duple or triple-meter of the lowlands."

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_folk_dances

    EDIT3:

    "The dynamic of this custom raises the issue ofthe significance and importance of the creative act at the level of the reconstructionof male dance, which was put into circulation by the nowadays Goral tradition or ancientVlach basic motifs, slightly modified, together with several Gorals from Polandand the Vlachs folkloric groups from Slovakia and Czech Republic in a well know annualfestival named Troje Meze that starts in the last week of June or in the first weekof July"

    "During 1970-1999 we observed a general scientific and cultural interest that doubledby financial efforts concerning collecting and publishing Polish Mountaineersfolklore, because they had published almost 73 traditional musical albums by Górals
    within the Podhale, Beskids and Silesia counties, and between these albums we havefound 16 albums of traditional choreology.We want to underline the several projects made by the Institute of Archaeologyand Ethnology from Kraków and of course all the seminars dedicated to Carpathianethnology, because scientific interest is still actual in the Academic Polish milieu.In all of these studies published in the last few years in Poland we have discoveredclues, scientific documents, opinions that lead us to a shyness but proper acceptanceof historic realities that obviously show the presence and ethno-cultural contributionsof Vlach shepherds to the completion of the Central European cultural spirit of ourCarpathian neighbours"

    I was at a barbecue hosted by a transplanted southerner, so lots of country music, including the late, great, Patsy Cine. I was introduced to her because Linda Ronstadt covered a lot of her songs, and instantly adored her.

    search the Brygian Bakchos and Slavic Bog to understand who Dionysos was,
    Also search the story of Dionysus campaign, the road of Tocharians and Alexander,

    I'll do my best, Serena, but inspiring in what way? Inspiring in love, to get over disappointment, to persevere, to overcome sadness? What? There are also happy and sad ones, rock or pop. There are infinite combinations.

    Forgive me if what I'm listening to is too commonplace or distasteful. All of these songs I've heard played on the radio of my local stations and enjoy quite much. This might take a few posts and may build on even more hehe.
